More Than A Portrait
This workshop is designed to push beyond a typical “nice” portrait and work towards painting a portrait that has psychological impact. We will discuss how to evoke emotion and mood. Using a model, we will create a semi detailed charcoal drawing to determine the “feel” of the painting, and then make a tonal underpainting to establish the differing values, push the lights & darks withing the composition, and create a monochromatic version of the finished product. We will finish the painting using a limited palette of oil color to glaze over the underpainting. Individual attention is given, all levels are welcome.
